Downs Barn Farm B&B and the self catering cottages are without doubt one of our favourite places to stay. Carolyn is a wonderful host and the new cottages are stunning! You cannot wish for more. Incredible!

Both stays were fantastic, Carolyn is a great host who looks after you really well, (breakfast is so good and scones to die for), the B&B and the self catering are really a very high standard, in a...

Stayed in St Loy B and B room at Downs Barn Farm in mid-October. It certainly lived up to the excellent reviews and descriptions on the well-written, user-friendly website. We were welcomed by Carolyn on our arrival and shown into the comfortable guests' lounge with open fire to warm us from the blustery rain outside. Carolyn brought in a tray... More

We stayed in both the B&b and the new self catering Bridies Barn and can only say that both of these were of the highest standard,the best that we've ever stayed in! We really enjoyed our stay and our hosts were terrific. Thank you so much,we will return.

After staying in the B & B rooms at Downs Barn Farm in the past - which are excellent - we opted to take a short break in one of Carolyn's new barn conversions. These have been designed to the highest standard with great attention to detail. The barns are quite simply superb! They overlook a field and are completely... More

I can only really reiterate what all the other reviews say; this Bed and Breakfast is first class. Carolyn is a professional and perfect host and definitely knows what it takes to provide outstanding accommodation. Rather than write a long review I will just bullet point why Downs Barn is so good. (Incidentally, we stayed in Bridies Barn, one of... More

We stayed at the bed and breakfast for three nights in September. Carolyn could not have been more hospitable. The welcoming cream tea was just the ticket after a long journey (fresh scones just out of the oven). The breakfasts were excellent. Carolyn was able to give us advice on places to go as well as lovely places to eat.... More

If you are looking for a great B & B in Cornwall look no further! A great welcome of tea and scones with clotted cream- en-suite rooms beautifuly equipped and a lounge to use in the evening. Not sure how long I'll have to spend on the treadmill to work off the irresistable breakfast!

It is difficult to find unused adjectives to describe the location, the accommodation, the breakfasts and the warm welcome at Downs Barn Farm. I suggest you don't waste too much time reading other reviews and just get on with making a booking, and if you get good weather as we did you really have hit the jackpot. Our weekend was... More
